There's a prominent herbal streak to the nose of this wine, but it's not jarring thanks to the support of rich black cherry and black currant fruit core. The savory herbs, menthol and licorice herbaceousness continue through to the palate, where again it's matched by equally intense dark fruit flavors and a mouthwatering finish. Silky wood-spice accents the long finish. Drink now–2014.
